Draft Jitters . . .
. With all the talk about a state of emergency declara
tion the draft call jitters among the student male popula
tion have increased considerably, a normal reaction to an
abnormal situation. Several college papers over the nation
have expressed concern about this condition which has in
fluenced more than one college student to give up his edu
cation rather than be drafted. Some comments that are
typical of the college editorial feeling on American
campuses was expressed by The Daily Tar Heel of North
Carolina university. It is reprinted below.
The words of soothing advice on the draft problem
that students have been getting recently from the admin
istration and from Selective Service heads should be a
signal for quite a few college boys to relax.
Both the administration and the draft bigwig have
offered words of great encouragement to those college
students who figured that they might as well join up before
the decision was taken out of their hands. Admittedly,
the uncertain course of future events may temper the
effect of their words, but we think that students should
carefully evaluate the present draft situation before mak
ing any rash moves. There is at present a law on the
books that prevents college students "in good standing"
from being called into the service. That law makes it
possibly for students to rest easy in their collegiate status
if they can keep up their grades. And the announcement
that the Selective Service will call more men for pre-induc-tion
examinations in order to make up a deficit caused
by the large number of college student deferments should
be taken as gospel for those who have been getting the
draft call jitters.
Administration officials have admitted that they fear
a mass exodus of students into the armed services over the
Christinas holidays. Such a migration would seriously
imperil the University, and is completely unnecessary in
the light of the information and statements that have
been made during the last few days. Students should be
. encouraged by the words and seek to continue their col
legiate education. The truth of the matter is, college stu
dents have been the "golden-haired" boys of the selective
service system, and, right now and for sometime, in the
future, they are going to continue to be. For college stu
dents not to take advantage of their position would be
foolish. An educated populace is going to be at a distinct
advantage in a world conflict, and draft officials and the
government have realized this by making the provisions
for collegians.
We fervently hope that students will be stilled in their
worries by the statements that have been made recently
and carefully evaluate their situation before making rash
moves that will be determined to themselves, their Uni
versity, and, more important, to their nation.

Buttered Bread
There are a few students at this University who evi
dently are not aware of the buttered side of their proverb
' ial bread. This became known when an inventory was
taken of the Union Book Nook last week.
The results were staggering! No less than 97 books
worth more than $260 have been lost, "borrowed" or stolen
during the course of the semester. Union authorities do
not believe the books have been deliberately stolen but
rather just taken by students who intended to return them
and for some reason haven't done so.
It is disheartening to think that students would take
advantage of the free services of their Union to the extent
of walking off with the books for their personal library
but it seems to be more than coincidence to have 97 books
borrowed and none returned.
The Book Nook is not a lending library. It is another
service of the Union aimed to provide pleasure and re
laxation for the student. As the situation of "borrowed
books" has arised before, the Union activities committee
specified that the room was not to be used for study and
books were not to be checked out. If this "borrowing"
continues, a logical solution might be to require students
to check their coats and books before entering the Nook
and to place a guard at the door to see that no books are
taken from the room.
It seems to us that this plan would be undesirable
to both student and Union worker. It would place the
Nook under a militant guard, distracting the relaxing at
mosphere of the room, and at the same time cause addi
tional trouble for the Union staff to enforce police action.
There is absolutely no need for a student to walk off
with a book that is placed in the reading room for his
pleasure as well as the enjoyment of the other 8,000
students. All these students are paying for these books
and will pay for duplicates if others are taken. The money
used to replace the missing books could well be used for
other worth-while purposes.
Last spring when the students voted an increase in
fees for Union improvement, many students voiced their
desire to have a bowling alley in the Union. This comment
by a Union official should clarify the situation: "One of
the reasons we don't have a bowling alley is that books
cost so much." Not only new books are high priced, but
also duplicates of those that have been "misplaced."
Ponder it well. If you don't want to find your favorite
novel under lock and key, available to you only upon
presentation of ID card, draft 'card or driver's license,
repel that urge to borrow the book to read over night. j.w.

to eat it.
After the dishes have been
washed (or disposed of in some
way) there will be a short tea
smoker while everyone gets bet
ter acquainted.
Works Reward
That evening with a day's hard
work behind them the girls will
be escorted to East Hills for an
evening of dancing.
The Delta Sigs have been
planning on this event for quite
some time, but as yet, the matter
of dates is not settled. The argu
ments have been reduced to mere
drawing of straws now.
Although the girls are all plan
ning on a good time, there are
many others dissatisfied with the
whole plan. Within 24 hours after
the plans had been announced,
three indignant boy friends had
called to complain. Several of
the girls had to break dates.
A check on the Delta Sig bul
letin board where the list of
pledges is posted shows that the
actives are much quicker than
their freshmen in taking advan
tage of the opportunity.
Several of the Kappa Delta
actives have expressed regret
that they can't accompany their
pledges. "It sounds like fun; after
all, who's planning on working?"
said one of the girls who is stay
ing at home.

Christmas time is here for
sure! The annual Ag College
Christmas party, which was held
last night in the Activities build
ing added its bit to the general
atmosphere prevailing on Ag
(and everywhere).
Sponsored by the Ag Exec
board the event featured a
speaker, choral numbers by the
Ag College chorus and Christmas
caroling for all.
In the minds of most 4-Hers,
the recent club congress, held in
Washington, D. C, is the topic of
thought. The
group that at
tended is espe
cially enthusi
astic about it,
and the long
train ride out
there was
eased quite a
bit by much

C o ngratula-
tions are due
James Pollard for earning the po
sition ui mira nign m me nation
on the list of Achievements
Award winners. Of course, the
two top winners receive the ac
companying awards, but being
third in the nation should re
ceive considerable credit also.
After all this is about the highest
award that any 4-H club member
can obtain.
Speaking of 4-H work Dick
and Cal Kuska traveled to Chi
cago the day before Thanksgiv
ing to put up the big exhibit dis
played in the corridor of the
amphitheater. The life-sized calf
which they constructed was so
real that one man from Kearney
wanted to know who to see to
purchase that "good-looking
calf in the Nebraska 4-H ex
hibit." Miss Joan Skucius will be
back on campus next semester
after returning from her stay in
Europe as an exchange student.
She will be available to organiza
tions and meetings to give talks
on the highlights of her trip.
Joan is now lecturing in various
parts of the state and will be
here in Lincoln today sometime.
Jan. o, 15)51, seems a long way
off, but really it isn't. Why men
tion this date? It is when the
annual Ag Union Sno-Ball
dance is scheduled with Bobby
Mills and his orchestra provid
ing the music. So, fellows, get
your dates now, because that is
not very long after we come back
from vacation.
The rodeo association under
the presidency of Rex Coffman
is now sponsoring some rodeo
pictures during Thursday noons
to take the place of the football
pictures originally shown at that
time. Frank Stewart has already
shown one set and there are
more for future use when the
time comes.
When one walks into the Ag
Union now, the signs "Don't be a
Littcrbug" stares one in the face.
I wish people would heed these
little reminders by throwing this
"Rag" either into the waste
basket or back in the box where
you found it. This is just one
way in which you can keep our
Union a little cleaner than it has
been in the past.
Another ping-pong "Champ for
a Week" was named Monday at
the Ag Union, Christian Yamate
won the crown from a field of
eight contestants during the
noon hour. Games in this con
test are 15 points each. Con
testants for next week's 'meet'
may sign up anytime now in the
Ag Union.
Contrary to opinion over that
way I refuse to comment on
Love Memorial hall's unique
Christmas decorations other than
that I think it really adds to the
Ag Christmas spirit.

Assistant Dean,
Two persons connected with
the University have received
recognition from The Lincoln
Journal's weekly recognition gal
lery. Each Tuesday The Journal

Chicago Graduates
Miss Augustine, a graduate of
the University of Chicago, came
to the University three years ago
as assistant dean of women. Her
work deals with social events,
registration of all such occasions,
arranging for chaperons and at
tending most of the all-University
She also arranges employment
for women students, checks on
jobs both on and off the campus

Debates Course
The hotly-debated question of
whether "homemaking" courses
should be taken in college re
ceived a split decision recently at
New Jersey College for Women
at New Brunswick, N. J. The
question, "Do you feel you
should have taken courses in
homemaking while you were in
college?" was put to 230 gradu
ates from the classes of 1925 and
Although more than half of
the '25ers answered the ques
tion in the affirmative, 53 per
cent of the replies from the 1945
class were negative. This would
seem to indicate that the more
recent graduates have not yet
lelt the need or else have dis
covered other means of satisfy
ing it.
